I read a total of 8 books this month and I’m a bit disappointed because I was aiming for at least 12. But, overall, it was a great reading month since most of the books I read turned out to be very enjoyable.

This month, I plan to read a total of 16 books. Yeah, I know…not likely. But I still want to try! This way I can make up for the horrible reading month that was February. Two of the books I’ll be reading are reference books for my writing. I’m excited to get into them but I’m so bad at making myself read non-fiction. I have never finished a single non-fiction book. That’s how bad it is…
Here are the books I’ve read so far with their ratings, some upcoming blog updates, my reading recap and writing update:

This year’s Diverse-A-Thon was success for me. My initial goal was to read three books during the week, but I read four instead. If you want to see my TBR post, here. The only regret I have is not participating in the chats as much as I wanted to. Still, it was a fun week and I loved seeing so many participate, celebrating diversity. Even though it had ended tomorrow, I’ll still continue reading Diverse books and prioritizing them to others. I’ll try to sum up my feelings for each book as best as I can.
There are two things that I’m trying to focus on this year: Diversity and Fantasy/Si-Fi novels. Fantasy is quickly becoming my favorite genre, so much so that I’ve decided to read very few other genres in the year 2017. This particular post is a list of Fantasy/Sci-Fi books that have Black protagonists or main characters. (Click on the covers or the highlighted, underlined titles to add on Goodreads).
